Gino Razzi is both a well-respected
winemaker, and also a hell of a nice person. It's also
great that he choose to open up a winery in Pennsylvania,
and in a small town just south of Philadelphia.
His first release of his own, before comign
to Philadelphia, was the 95 rated Symposium, Montepulciano
d’Abruzzo. After coming to Philadelphia, and then
purchasing Smithbridge winery to take advantage of its
vines. (I think that I'll do my first interview on this
site of him).
I was fortunate enough to attend his grand
opening this past December, and try many of his releases.
I was introduced to many different grapes that I hadn't
heard of, any for rounding out his variety of releases, he
also had a couple of blush wines.
The White Cabernet is an interesting taste
in itself, but a little bit too acidic at this point in
time. Also, I think because of the overall small production
run, the wine is priced a little too high. However, I am a
fan of several of his other wines, and I think that in the
years to come, this will become better in both price and
